Complete solutions for decentralised power production
As a full-service provider, the UKA Group, which was founded in 1999, provides all services up to the handover of operationally-ready energy parks.
At the point of commissioning, our subsidiary UKB Umweltgerechte Kraftanlagen Betriebsführung GmbH ensures that the turbines will operate for decades with optimal technical and economic performance.
Our subsidiary UKA Projektträger GmbH & Co. KG, which is based in Lohmen (Mecklenburg), is responsible for the implementation of all of the UKA Group’s construction projects. Due to our large purchasing volume, UKA is able to work in a particularly cost-efficient manner and can offer its services to external customers as well – a win-win situation for all parties.
All projects are accompanied up to permit-compliant implementation, which involves providing support for everything from the construction of pathways and foundations to grid connection, turnkey construction and commissioning to following up on all official requirements and acceptance tests in compliance with the German Federal Imissions Control Act (BImSchG).
As an expert for wind energy in forested locations, UKA has already commissioned several wind farms in commercial forests. The Group also successfully implements repowering projects and provides support for collaboration partners throughout all project phases.The UKA Group currently employs over 600 people at our various sites in Meissen, Cottbus, Rostock, Lohmen in Mecklenburg, Erfurt, Magdeburg, Oldenburg, Bielefeld, Grebenstein (near Kassel) and Hanover. In addition, we are currently expanding our business activities in other European markets and have opened an office in Madrid for our subsidiary UKA-Iberia S.L.U. Our subsidiary UKA North America LLC, which is based in Stuart, Florida, is also working on promising renewable energy projects in the USA.
